The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
The staff and students at All Saints’ Episcopal Church and Day School are annually responsible for one of the largest elementary school food drives in the state around the holiday season to benefit the Food. And when St. Mary’s asked for an extra hand this spring through the “Kids Helping Kids” Food Drive, All Saints’ was one of the first schools to respond – this time with a “Pennies for Peanut Butter” drive to make sure kids will have food during the long hot summer.
Students from the fifth, sixth and seventh grades took part in a friendly competition among home rooms to see which class could collect the most pennies during that drive. And when the final penny was counted, tens of thousands of Arizona children will be fed thanks to the generosity of the students, parents and faculty.
On behalf of those in need, thank you, All Saints’ Episcopal Church for supporting St. Mary’s efforts this summer.
